A beautiful castle to stay......
We enjoyed our stay very much, ,most of the staff are very accommodating, especially Peter from the restaurant and Leona from the Reception. The Schloss is a beautiful castle built on an amazing position, of course it being an old building there are always little problems here and there, but nothing that can spoil such a special locale. It is worth the splurge.

Good place
It is a very good hotel with history, very nice view from hotel terrace and the outdoor pool is very lovely. However, there is service improvement needed. We have had our breakfast, but the waitress didn’t inform us that there is also warm order to kitchen available. But otherwise, we loved this place, there is lot small things have been taking care very well for little traveler like our 8 years boy ...

Manager raised his voice and argued with me
We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of a 3 week 40th anniversary trip. On the last night of our trip we returned to the hotel having eaten elsewhere and asked for a table on the terrace where we might enjoy a bottle of wine. There were many other diners and we were seated at a clothed table among them. We were not offered water, napkins, or a menu. After more than 45 minutes of trying to get the attention of the sommelier or manager (Christina Thiery, son of the palace owners) while others around us were being served, we finally waved our arms to get Mr. Thiery's attention and asked for a wine menu. More than 20 minutes more passed after he brought the menu -- my husband was angry and left for our room. 20 minutes passed and I finally said Excuse me! in a louder than usual voice and got the attention of the sommelier. I explained why we were unhappy and left then went by reception to register my complaint. I met Thiery at our room and he loudly demanded to know why we left. When I told him he accused me of lying - said we had only been there 10 minutes and wanted to know WHY WE HADN'T LET ANYONE KNOW WE WERE READY TO ORDER. Mind you, our every need had been tended to throughout our stay including other nights in the dining room. Mr. Thiery raised his voice throughout our conversation then stormed off. We paid close to $2K US for this abuse & still don't know why it happened. Was it because we are Americans? Or is Mr. Thiery just in the wrong line of work? Unforgivable.

Relais and Chateau as it was supposed to be
We travel extensively around the world and when we are in Europe, we frequent stay in boutique hotel belonging to Relais and Chateaux. Schloss Dürnstein was a superb example how it was in the past and how physical plant of the 5 star old world hotel and service should be. Unfortunately, in the last 5-10 years most of the French and Italian 5 star properties were bought by corporations, that run it to the ground. The reason is simple: tourism is exploded and supply is smaller then demand. For this reason, a lot of properties are run down and do not cater to their guest as it was in the past. Not in Schloss Dürnstein. It is still privately own and they have tremendous pride in keeping it with all traditions of luxury of 5 star property. Rooms are updated, 2 well kept pools, breakfast is superb and service is excellent.there is nothing you will ask them that they will not try to help you with. What a breath of fresh air in such uncertain times. My compliments to the owner Christian and his sister. Definitely will return and spread the word.
